Everything but elephants-and
dancing girls comes to Dinner

by Austin Ratner

The Man Who Came to Dinner
will include "everything but ele-
phants and dancing girls," says
Charles Sutherland, director of this
Ann Arbor Civic Theatre produc-
tion. But the play does have a chil-
dren's choir, which is almost as
good as dancing girls, and at least as
good as elephants.
In two and a half hours and three
acts, Dinner follows the comic
repartee between radio announcer
Sheridan Whiteside, who is laid up
with a broken hip in the home of the

of people were going to the theater
to forget, just as they do nowa-
days." Dinner was designed as an ef-
fort to ignore what was going on in
Europe through the used of light-
hearted humor and the glitz of
American stardom. Sutherland de-
scribes the play as "(the type)
where you leave and you think, 'Boy,
was that funny. And I don't remem-
ber a single thing they said."' The
Ronald Reagan approach to theater-
going, perhaps?
Although The Man Who Came
to Dinner is an oft-performed
American classic (it's been around

for 63 years) this is the Ann Arbor
Civic Theatre's first production of
the play, and Sutherland says he was
excited to take a crack at George S.
Kaufman's and Moss Hart's origi-
nal script. "They are wonderful old
pieces which are large in scope and in
heart," Sutherland said of the duo's
plays.
Sutherland, a University gradu-
ate who has been directing for more
than 10 years, loves reviving old
theater and has worked to produce a
meticulously accurate set, including
costumes from the Ann Arbor Civic

Stanleys, and a wide variety of other
guests. Whiteside will be played by
Beverly Pooley, a professor at the
University Law School and a 30-
year acting veteran of 'Ann Arbor.
Pooley is one of a 25-member cast,
which Sutherland says he feels is a
sophisticated group, skilled in deal-
ing with the play's quick wit and
with the language and attitude of
the glamorous era just before
World War II.
Sutherland said that in 1939,
when the play was written, "a lot
